Where are we headed?

I was kicked off Twitter for a while and I decided to stay off.

A Study shows that 70% of millennials think socialism is a system they would like to live under. I can end the rant just by saying, “Why hasn’t it worked in any of the countries its been tried?” However the response to that has been that all those other countries haven’t done it right or they didn’t have enough money to do it right. Well, one of the latest examples of having the wealth then turning their country into a pile of monkey manure is Venezuela. They had and have vast oil reserves but the people of the country have been reduced to eating pets, grass and rats to survive. Why? Because the “leaders” of the country decided that socialism or as they say, rulers get ALL the good stuff is the way to go.

In the hallowed halls of academia the educators propagandists teach preach the theoretical benefits of socialism and or communism. They say if it is done right and with enough funding it is better than any other system. Everyone can be equal they say. What they neglect to tell the young skulls full of mush is that since the government doesn’t build or create anything the funding can only be done three ways: 1) Tax those with wealth until they are no longer able to support the system. 2) Nationalize the money-making businesses, eliminate profits and pay the workers less and less. 3) Confiscate wealth from the “rich” and support those not so fortunate. The first does a couple of things. It discourages the people that create goods and services that are useful and make money. It also keeps others from even trying. If they can they flee the country. (This actually goes for anyone with potential.) The second option will eventually destroy these businesses because the workers will no longer try or excel because they know they will not get any better off. Finally, confiscation (beyond taxes) won’t work because once you take all of someone’s money what’s left to take? As Margaret Thatcher said, “The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.” The academics always look at things in the present tense and they assume that Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos will be willing to give up everything for the state. Then make it again and give it all up again That is simply a steaming pile of elephant excrement.

The rules and regulations that our government is continually creating are hurting. It is estimated that there are around 560 billionaires in the USA. This down from last year’s 624. Of the 560 that are left 46% are worth less than last year. Much of this is because of government regulation and tax increases. (Sorry, that tax breaks for the rich cow caca didn’t extend to their businesses.) Millionaires haven’t fared any better. This year, according to Forbes, there are around 7,999,000 millionaires. This number is also down from last year. It would be down more but the billionaires that dropped from the B ranks to the M ranks helped a little. I didn’t footnote this paragraph but you can easily fact check my numbers.

A growing problem is the welfare state. Some cities and states are giving welfare to illegal aliens. They are also giving them free education and healthcare and what they should be giving them is passage home. These are the cities and states with the highest taxes. We don’t treat our own military veterans as well as the illegal aliens.

Two other things are pushing us down the wrong road. The first is the distancing of the country from its founding beliefs. From the pilgrims in the 1600’s to our independence in 1776 every one of the documents created about the founding of the country gave credit and or pledged allegiance to God. The secularists of today want to push us away from Christianity. Socialism requires loyalty to the system above and in place of all else. I believe this has led to the decay of morals in the country. No longer is it in fashion to treat others as you would have them treat you. No longer is it okay to have school prayer. In the few places they still recite the pledge of allegiance to the flag in school they have removed “under god” from many of them. How many people under the age of thirty can name three of the Ten Commandments and even if they could how many of them would actually follow them? Just in case you need a reminder…

Finally, something should be said about the parents of the little darlings of the past twenty or thirty years. Fact number one; according to the latest statistics I could find about 42% of US births are out of wedlock. This number has been increasing every year. I don’t know the percentage of those are actually raised by the mother alone but I’m sure it is considerable. Many of these end up on welfare. (Mothers, and later, the children.) These children are usually the ones that have little or no discipline, do poorly in school and end up in menial jobs or on welfare…….And it isn’t getting any better.  I didn’t even mention the the mommies and daddys that tell little Johnny even though he came in ninth place he gets a trophy anyway.

That’s for another rant.

A man was washed up on a beach after a terrible shipwreck.

Only a sheep and a sheepdog were washed up with him.

After looking around, he realized that they were stranded on a deserted island.

After being there awhile, he got into the habit of taking his two animal companions to the beach every evening to watch the sunset.

One particular evening, the sky was a fiery red with beautiful cirrus clouds, the breeze was warm and gentle a perfect night for romance.

As they sat there, the sheep started looking better and better to the lonely man. Soon, he leaned over to the sheep and put his arm around it.

But the sheepdog, ever protective of the sheep, growled fiercely until the man took his arm from around the sheep.

After that, the three of them continued to enjoy the sunsets together, but there was no more cuddling.

A few weeks passed by and, lo and behold, there was another shipwreck.

The only survivor was Nancy Pelosi .

That evening, the man brought Nancy to the evening beach ritual. It was another beautiful evening red sky, cirrus clouds, a warm and gentle breeze perfect for a night of romance.

Pretty soon, the man started to get ‘those feelings’ again..

He fought the urges as long as he could but he finally gave in and leaned over to Nancy and told her he hadn’t had sex for months. Nancy batted her eyelashes and asked if there was anything she could do for him.

He said, ‘Would you mind taking the dog for a walk?’

STOP gun control.

If you would like to receive notification of the rants when they are published please email and put “rant” in the subject line and I will add you to the list.

This comes to us by way of my friend Ed. It has a lot of statistics about death in America. Many will be surprised and if you are, please read up to see just how people die in the US.  There are many articles describing the main causes of death.  All suicide comes in at number 10.  That includes by gun.  (Suicide is the top cause of death by firearm.)

It’s always helps to have facts. 

Interesting statistics! This jibes with the research of Prof. Lott at the University of Chicago, who is a noted expert on gun laws and stats. 

Here are some facts. 

There are 30,000 gun related death s per year by firearms; this number is not disputed. The U.S. population is 324,059,091 as of June 22, 2016. Do the math: 0.00925% of the population dies from gun related actions each year. Statistically speaking, this is insignificant! What is never told, however, is a breakdown of those 30,000 deaths, to put them in perspective as compared to other causes of death: 

65% of those deaths are by suicide, which would never be prevented by gun laws. 
15% are by law enforcement in the line of duty and justified. 
17% are through criminal activity, gang and drug related or mentally ill persons, better known as gun violence. 
3% are accidental discharge deaths. 

So technically “gun violence” is not 30,000 annually, but drops to 5,100. Still too many? Now lets look at how those deaths spanned across the nation. 

480 homicides (9.4%) were in Chicago
344 homicides (6.7%) were in Baltimore 
333 homicides (6.5%) were in Detroit 
119 homicides (2.3%) were in Washington D.C. (a 54% increase over prior years) 
So basically, 25% of all gun crime happens in just 4 cities. All 4 of those cities have strict gun laws, so it is not the lack of law that is the root cause. 

This basically leaves 3,825 for the entire rest of the nation, or about 75 deaths per state. That is an average because some States have much higher rates than others. For example, California had 1,169 and Alabama had 1. 

Now, who has the strictest gun laws by far? California, of course, but understand, it is not guns causing this. It is a crime rate spawned by the number of criminal persons residing in those cities and states. So, if all cities and states are not created equal, then there must be something other than the tool causing the gun deaths. 

Are 5,100 deaths per year horrific? How about in comparison to other deaths? All death is sad and especially so when it is in the commission of a crime but that is the nature of crime. Robbery, death, rape, assaults are all done by criminals. It is ludicrous to think that criminals will obey laws. That is why they are called criminals. 

But what about other deaths each year? 
40,000+ die from a drug overdose . THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT! 
36,000 people die per year from the flu, far exceeding the criminal gun deaths. 
34,000 people die per year in traffic fatalities(exceeding gun deaths even if you include suicide). 

Now it gets good: 

200,000+ people die each year (and growing) from preventable medical errors. You are safer walking in the worst areas of Chicago than you are when you are in a hospital! 

710,000 people die per year from heart disease. It’s time to stop the double cheeseburgers! So, what is the point? If the liberal loons and the anti-gun movement focused their attention on heart disease, even a 10% decrease in cardiac deaths would save twice the number of lives annually of all gun-related deaths (including suicide, law enforcement, etc.). 

A 10% reduction in medical errors would be 66% of the total number of gun deaths or 4 times the number of criminal homicides.  Simple, easily preventable 10% reductions! So, you have to ask yourself, in the grand scheme of things, why the focus on guns? 

It’s pretty simple: 

Taking away guns gives control to governments. The founders of this nation knew that regardless of the form of government, those in power may become corrupt and seek to rule as the British did by trying to disarm the populace of the colonies. It is not difficult to understand that a disarmed populace is a controlled populace. 

Thus, the second amendment was proudly and boldly included in the U.S. Constitution. It must be preserved at all costs . So, the next time someone tries to tell you that gun control is about saving lives, look at these facts and remember these words from Noah Webster: “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed.”

The “RED FLAG” laws are the top of a slippery slope. The intentions of some are admirable but the end result can only be bad.  Please read the last line of Mr. McDonald’s article.  It wont be long before some politician will say something like, ” We should keep gun ownership only for persons who have graduated from college.”  or maybe if you are a certain ethnicity you can’t own a gun.  Great Britain has some of the strictest gun laws in the world and they had almost 6,500 gun crimes in 2016.  Only criminals have guns so a law abiding person can not protect him or her self.

An old Italian Mafia Don is dying and he called his grandson to his bed Grandson I wanta you to listen to me. I wanta you to take mya 45 automatic pistol, so you will always remember me. But grandpa I really don’t like guns, how about you leaving me your Rolex watch instead.

You lisina to me, some day you goin a be runna da bussiness, you goina have a beautiful wife, lotsa money, a biga home and maybe a couple of bambino, some day you goina come home and maybe finda you wife in bed with another man. Whata you gonna do then? Pointa to you watch and say, “TIMES UP”?

A multipart, rambling, disjointed rant.

A multipart, rambling, disjointed rant. 

 Part one is all about people that shouldn’t have drivers’ licenses.  I know I’ve been down this road before.  Get it?  Anyway I do a lot of driving for my day job so I get to see many stupid and irresponsible drivers.  In just the last month I’ve seen right turns across three lanes of traffic. How about someone that tailgates at seventy miles per hour and was probably surprised when he ran into the back of the tractor-trailer. Then there are the ones that nap, text or talk on their phone through a green light.  Luckily I’m not allowed to shoot them. Then you have the thirty mph driver on the interstate.  They are always fun to be behind. Especially when there is seventy-some mph traffic coming up behind you! When a left turn light turned red an idiot decided to swerve into the straight ahead lane and sideswiped another car.  I saw all that and more in the last month.  I’m in south Florida and I expect to see that stuff during tourist season but in the summer?  My only explanation is that more and more of the snowbirds are moving here.  There is also the problem of people that just don’t know or follow traffic laws.

 OK, enough of my little peeves.

What the hell is this attraction to socialism?  It takes about a minute on the internet to discover that it doesn’t work.  From Venezuela and Denmark to California and New York.  Pure Capitalism is everyone working for what they have.  Pure Socialism is the government providing everything you have.  Like education, healthcare, food, housing and so on.  It sounds pretty good until you realize that somebody has to pay for these things.  What normally happens is that the government raises taxes on people that earn money to pay for the goodies.  This can work…for a minute.  There are a few things that can and most certainly will happen.  (Any or all)  1: those getting taxed go broke and end up on the receiving end of the benefits.  2: those being taxed move someplace else.  3: those getting taxed decide its easier to not work and take the benefits. (Kind of like 1 except before they go broke.)  4: the government takes over bank accounts and businesses. (This ends up destroying said businesses because the good jobs go to friends of the leaders and then most of the money goes to the elites.  Look at the once oil rich nation of Venezuela.)  5:  when the business get ruined people lose their jobs then they have to get the benefits. Then the government raises the taxes on lower and lower income people then they stop working and then those things the government is supposed to provide cease to exist and you end up eating your pets to survive.  So what is the attraction?  Can that many people be that stupid?

 What about the democrat love for illegal aliens?  The democrat union leaders say they are for the Americans in their unions but whole heartedly support the politicians (with big, big bucks) that want more and more illegals.  This is actually a shared problem  Republican and democrat.  The lobbyists that pay off republicans and the democrats want the cheap labor.  The democrats need a permanent underclass to promise free stuff to in order to get and keep their votes.  Why, since hundreds of thousands of ILLEGAL ALIENS are streaming across the southern border, turning California and other parts of the country into non American democrat areas.  Why hasn’t a democrat or republican government done anything to stop the flow? Hmmmm?

 Now let’s talk about the democrat clown show running for president.  Just plain wow.  Diversity in everything but ideas.  They are all promising free stuff.  Crazy Bernie is the only honest one.  He says he will tax the hell out of everyone with money. Now that sounds like a formula for success to me.  Biden says poor kids are as smart and talented as white kids.  Nobody believes anything Harris says. Warren proves she’s a liar daily. And so it goes.

It’s quite a while until the election and a lot can happen but here is how they stand right now.  The positions don’t surprise me and I doubt they will change much by primary time.  What surprises me is that I don’t know most of the names.  Here’s the list from one site.  There are a lot of sites with similar polls.  They’re definitely going to need more than one clown car.

A couple is lying in bed after a rousing good time when her cell phone rings.  Her end of the conversation goes like this:
“Oh hi honey.  How’s everything going?”
“Great! Are you having a good time?”
“That’s good.” 
“I miss you too”
“I’ll see you tomorrow.”
She hangs up and her boyfriend asks who called?
“Oh, that was my husband. He was telling me what a great time he is having at the golf outing with you.”

What’s the difference between a prostitute and a democrat?
A prostitute stops screwing you when you run out of money?

The entitled generations
Filed under: General
Posted by: Joe Melchiorre @ 1:28 pm

First of let me thank those of you who receive the rant via email from me. Please retweet the rant.  Thanks again.
The entitled generations.  Somewhere around the seventies maybe in the eighties kids began to to buy into the Socialist agenda.  I should say they didn’t outgrow the kid idea that they should have everything they wanted.  Suddenly everything should be free.  The socialists in our education system have been lying to them for years and their parents have been coddling the little darlings as well.  Little Johnny comes. In 7th place in the egg roll and still gets a trophy.  Mary wants the latest triple decker doll house with running water and a sun room for Ken, Ken and Barbie and mommy runs out to get it before she holds her breath and wets her pants. Bad behavior for a twenty-two year old.  When mommy and daddy give the darlings everything they want and their idea of discipline is taking away the kids cell phone for an hour, they aren’t building a tower of character but rather a worthless pile of mush.  Can you be surprised if the kid wants to live in mom’s basement and post selfies on instagram and bitch on twitter how mean those Republicans are for wanting them to work for a living.  
Earlier generations knew one simple truth, that whether it was working as a stock broker, rocket scientist or ditch digger you have to earn what you get.  Now a lot of  politicians are telling the gullible buffoons that they can have free ——-, ——- or ——- (fill in the blanks.). All they have to do is vote for which freebie-giving politician strikes their fancy.  They believe that the government will pay for it.  Some believe that taxing the rich more will pay for it. Most rich people got rich by working at something and providing a product or products that people want.  For the most part they did this to become wealthy.  They understood that if they have a good idea and the fortitude to see it through they can become rich.  Ask most of them and they will tell you they failed more than once.  They kept going and finally succeeded.  Without the incentive of wealth they probably would have given up.  The reason I say this is simple.  If some people know the government will give them everything for free they won’t be productive.  On the other hand if a person knows that if he or she gets rich the government is going to take most of their money they will do one of two things. One: not work at it or two: move somewhere that won’t punish them for getting rich.  I hope the majority of young ones learn from the likes of Venezuela and the other failed Socialist states before they ruin this country.  Look what they have done to California. California is almost five hundred billion in debt and it isn’t getting better.  Look here. 
The schools, from grade school through college are more interested in advancing the leftist, socialist agenda than actually teaching something that will be of use when they enter the real world.  After all, what job does a degree in albino midget lesbian studies actually qualify Johnny for?  The kids have been told that they are going to be OK as long as they just depend on the government. They are in for a very rude awakening if the politicians who are pushing the Socialist agenda ever win control of the country. For Socialism to realize its promise of equality everyone must sacrifice for the good of the masses.  The problem arises when the people who actually work to earn a living will have to support those who don’t.  The rulers of a socialist society don’t have to worry about it.  They pay themselves very well.
Senator Bernie Sanders was invited to address a gathering of the Indian First Nations chiefs in Denver, CO.
 He spoke for almost an hour about his plans for increasing the standard of living for all of their citizens by totally free government grants for free college educations, free Medicare for all, etc. He mentioned how he always supported these issues that came forward to him.  Although Sanders was vague about the details for the funding of his plans, he spoke eloquently about his ideas if he wins the White House in 2020.
At the conclusion of his speech, the chiefs presented him with a beautiful plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, “Walking Eagle.”
The proud Sanders accepted the plaque and then returned to Washington .
A news reporter asked the chiefs how they came to select the new name they had given to Sanders. 
They explained that “Walking Eagle” is the name given to a bird so full of shit it can no longer fly.

Are you offended?
Filed under: General
Posted by: Joe Melchiorre @ 11:43 am

Happy, healthy and prosperous New Year to all!

Are you getting the rant second hand?  I’d you are and you want to get notified when a new one comes out then drop me a line at and put rant in the subject and I will add you to my list.

 If you get offended if you hear words like ***, ****, ****, ****, ****, **********, ********, ************ or ***** then you need to read this rant. .Spencer W. Kimball said,  ”Profanity is the effort of a feeble brain to express itself forcibly”. So if some buffoon says something like “**** you” (No 4 above) or “Eat ****” (No 2) to you it’s just because they are feeble minded.  There are plenty of ways to insult a person without profanity.  Sometimes it takes a little longer like the old Egyptian one, “May your wife be infested with the fleas of 100 camels.”or, “Your daughter reminds me of Webb Hubble.”  (I wonder how many people have said that to Bill Clinton?)   

 Due to the poor state of education in our country, it is more important to learn that Sally can have two mothers and that if Billy has seven apples capitalism is unfair, instead of learning the English language, math or history.  Without profanity the movie industry would have to rely solely on talent.  What a sad state of affairs that would be!  While I *****(No 9) and moan about it I’m being a little hypocritical because I use profanity as much as the next person.  My whole point is that while it isn’t appropriate in many settings there really isn’t anything to get that worked up about.  Some of my coworkers used to call a woman I worked for a ****.(No 3)  I would explain that just because she was as useless as a glass hammer they shouldn’t call her names.  It would just get them in trouble.  (I had a real good one to put in here but it was too offensive!)

 What really bothers me is people pretending they are getting offended by non-offensive stuff.  For example there is a movement afoot to ban Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer because poor Rudoph was getting bullied.  Then there is the story of Baby It’s Cold Outside.  This song was originally in the movie Neptune’s Daughter in 1949.  Ricardo Montalban tries to get Esther Williams to stay and she wants to go.  Meanwhile in the same movie Betty Garrat sings the same song to Red Skelton trying to get him to stay.  She is just as aggressive, if not more than Ricardo was. I didn’t hear any outrage about that.  Some radio stations banned the song.  They would be happy to play Cardi B singing Eat My ***(No 1) There are hundreds of example of faux outrage about things that are totally benign.  Midget for example was an actual medical term in the 1800’s.  Now it is considered pejorative because some short person decided they were insulted by it.  When I really want to ****(No 5) someone off I call them a ********(No 7). Some of them don’t mind because, after all, they voted for Hillary.

 There are people that think no Christian religious symbols should be evident anywhere.  They are offended by them.  The same goes for statues of confederate generals. They are getting torn down all over the south.  The truth is, for better or worse, they are part of the history of this country.  They should serve as a reminder of where we went wrong and where we shouldn’t go again.  Now the SJWs are going after some of the founders of the country because they had slaves.  I’m sure you have heard of many more non offensive things snowflakes are offended by. Being offended only serves to make you a victim and diminishes your worth especially when you are offended by the inoffensive.

Sure, I’ve been called an ***(No 1)hole I simply reply that without one you would be full of (No2). 


Jeff runs into a bar and says to the bartender, 

“Quick, give me five shots of tequila.”

The bartender sets them up and as quick as he does Jeff downs them.

The bartender says, “You drank them awfully fast.”

Jeff says, “You’d drink fast if you had what I have.”

Concerned, the bartender asks,”What do you have?

“Seventy five cents.” Jeff replies as he runs out the door.

The SCOTUS is corrupt
Filed under: General
Posted by: Joe Melchiorre @ 12:17 pm


The SCOTUS is corrupt.

The leftists on the Supreme Court have been joined by John Roberts in banning asylum “ban”.  To fully understand my disgust you should read the original asylum “ban”. You can see it here. 

If you don’t want to take the time, the “ban” prevents illegal aliens who enter the country illegally from applying for asylum.  Notice the word illegal is repetitive because they have entered the country fricken illegally!  If they came to a legal port of entry and stood in line they could apply for asylum.
Which brings me to the actual point of asylum.  Most of these people are coming from Central America and other countries not Mexico. If asylum from violence, harassment or persecution is the object then you accept the offer of asylum from the first country that offers it. (Mexico). That was just a side point. 
I’m certainly not a constitutional lawyer but try as you might, there is no way you can claim it is unconstitutional to make people abide by our laws, especially ones that enforce our borders.  There will be arguments all over television about it.  Big deal.  The truth is that we have a court from Bryer to Sotomayor that puts ideology ahead of the constitution.  The whole idea of the Supreme Court is to determine if matters brought before them adhere to the Constitution and the twenty-seven amendments.  The little bitter prune of a gnome, Ginsburg has openly stated she hates the President.  How can she be trusted to follow the constitution where a decision on anything Trump does is concerned?  She cannot.  Sotomayor and Kagan are just a couple of left wing rubber stamps.  Neither one of them has had an original idea since grade school.  Four of the justices twist themselves into knots trying to claim their decisions are in anyway consistent with the constitution.  Roberts has already proven he is a POS when he declared the healthcare mandate was a tax and not a penalty.  He actually rewrote a law from the bench.  He should have been impeached for that.

On to a different subject.  I have long held that the two biggest threats to the sovereignty of the US are the demoncRATs and Islam.  By the way, demoncRATs refers to democrat politicians, not those stupid enough to believe them and vote for them.  The demoncRATs are putting their party above the country in almost every matter that involves our borders and sovereignty.  The RINOs aren’t much better.  They want the illegal aliens here for cheap labor.  The demoncRATs want a permanent underclass, dependent on the government, for a voting bloc.  

Islam as a religion conflicts with all western ideologies.  I am not a scholar of the Quran but I have read that true believers think that you believe in Islam or you must convert or die.  There are Islamic sharia courts in the United States that think Sharia overrides US law and act as such.

There is evidence that “moderate” Muslims in the US  had knowledge of terror attacks beforehand and knowledge of perpetrators afterward but kept silent.  Were they quiet out of fear or solidarity?  There are places in France and England where non-Muslims dare not go. Not even the police. They have their own sharia courts.   Islam’s Sharia law is cast from the words of Muhammad, called “hadith,” his actions, called “sunnah,” and the Quran. 

In many cases the laws conflict with the host country’s law.  Beware it is coming here.  The Muslim population is around 1% of the country. It is growing faster than most other demographics.  This isn’t a problem. What is a problem is that they are taking over some towns and cities and trying to replace our justice system with Sharia.  Most of Sharia is similar to most other religions.  It’s the differences that matter.  Things like genital mutilation, marrying your eight year old first cousin and punishing women for getting raped and so on and so on.  Here are some examples of Sharia. 

 Here is a web site that highlights some of islam’s actions since 9/11.
Nobody in charge will act until it’s too late.  Luckily I’m old and I probably won’t be around to see the final collapse of the country.  I do worry for my son and his family.

 Thanks to my friend Ed for this one.

Phone call from husband…
“Honey it’s me. I don’t want to alarm you but I was hit by a car as I was leaving the office. Paula brought me to the hospital. They have checked me over and done some tests and some x-rays. The blow to my head was severe. Fortunately it did not cause any serious internal injury. However I have three broken ribs, a compound fracture in the left leg, and they think they may have to amputate my right foot.”
Wife’s Response:
“Who the hell is Paula?”

And if you find that hard to believe, you’ve never been married.

 Happy Thanksgiving          

  If you get the rant second-hand and would like to get the rant notifications via email just send an email to and put subscribe in the subject.

 There are two groups of republicans that are stupid.  The first are the congressmen that retired, not because they were losing their chairmanships but because they thought they were losing the majority.  They bought into the media/demoncRAT hype of a blue wave.  They thought Trump would cause a demoncRAT wipeout, not realizing that by deserting their party they were the cause of the loss of the House.  Of course some of them don’t care.  They just dislike Trump enough that screwing him was all that mattered.  ….or they “just can’t work with Trump!”

 That brings to the other republican dummies.  There are voters out there that either voted against the Republicans in the midterm or didn’t vote at all because they dislike Trump. Like that makes any sense at all.  What a bunch of morons.

 OK, that’s the Republicans. Now let’s talk about the Democrats.  Not the politicians (we all know they are all full of kangaroo crap) but the voters.  They fall into a few categories.  First you have the true believers.  These are the worst because no matter how much logic you hit them with they either accuse you of lying or call you names, stomp their feet and run away.

 Then there are the ones that know something  is fishy with the DemoncRATs but the party must win because the GOP will steal their money, keep migrant kids from their parents, keep the poor homeless migrants from making a life for themselves, kill the earth with pollution, give tax breaks to the rich, stop abortion or some combination of these things.  

 Finally you have the people who think the Cuban, Venezuelan, Haitian and the other socialist/communist models like them are the way to go.  Socialism, Marxism or Communism seems to be very attractive to them.  The problem is that the reality never matches up with the rosy picture the theory paints.  These forms of government always, and I do mean always end in tyranny, poverty for the masses and riches for the leaders of the sacred movement.  For some reason there are people in this country so lacking in intelligence and/or education that even though they see what socialism/Marxism/communism has done to the countries that have adopted those forms of government still think it would work here.  (The settlers at Plymouth tried it for a short while and decided it wouldn’t work.)

Now for a little more stupidity.  The people, left an right, that believe we should open our borders to anyone who can get here.  These folks fall into a few groups.  The first are those who want the unskilled, uneducated freeloaders that can be easily manipulated to become democrat voters with the promise of free stuff.  Some others, both lefties and righties, want the cheap labor.  Don’t fall for the media’s pitch that these people are needed because Americans won’t do the jobs. That’s elephant excrement!  They just don’t want to pay them to do the jobs.  Finally there are the lunatics that think that letting millions of people into the country that have no intention of assimilation won’t harm our culture. Check out how quickly Germany, France, Sweden and England have and are suffering. There are similar stories all across Europe.

One more bit of stupidity.  More and more Muslims are coming here.  Islam is NOT the religion of peace it is made out to be. Check this out.  Already we have jurisdictions where sharia law is practiced over US law.   We just had a judge rule that female genital mutilation is OK.check this out.  

The United States had very limited legal immigration between 1921, when the government decided we needed time to assimilate the immigrants we had, and 1965 when Ted Kennedy introduced the Immigration and Nationality Act in order to recruit more democrat voters.  I harp on immigration because I don’t think we will be able to recover the country from the waves of people coming here who don’t want to be Americans.

The Lone Ranger and Tonto walked into a saloon and sat down to have a beer.  

After a few minutes, a big tall cowboy walked in and said, “Who owns the big white horse outside?”

The Lone Ranger stood up, hitched his gun belt, and said

“I do….why?”  

The cowboy looked at the Lone Ranger and said,

“I just thought you’d like to know that your horse is about dead outside!”  

The Lone Ranger and Tonto rushed outside and sure enough, Silver was ready to die from heat exhaustion.

The Lone Ranger got the horse water and soon Silver was starting to feel a little better.  

The Lone Ranger turned to Tonto and said,

“Tonto, I want you to run around Silver and see if you can create enough of a breeze to make him start to feel better.”

Tonto said, “Sure, Kemosabe”, and took off running circles around Silver.  

Not able to do anything else but wait, the Lone Ranger returned to the saloon to finish his drink.  

A few minutes later, another cowboy struts into the bar and asks, “Who owns that big white horse outside?”

The Lone Ranger stands up again, and claims,

“I do, what’s wrong with him this time?”  


“Nothin’, but you left your injun runnin’.”

Morals and ethics.
Filed under: General
Posted by: Joe Melchiorre @ 12:15 pm

Morals and ethics.  There isn’t much difference between the two.  In the dictionary each definition mentions the other.  Finding either in most politicians is like finding gold dust in your underpants: Not likely! They are proving it in the Kavanaugh hearings.  The number one fact is that the only reason for the whole charade is to block Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court, and by extension, block Trump.  Some are worried about Roe vs. Wade.  I don’t even think anyone on the Supreme Court is intent on overturning that decision.  They aren’t looking to see if BK is a suitable candidate for the Supreme Court.  I’m sure that Feinstein, and the rest don’t give a rat’s rear end about Ford, Kavanaugh or their families.  How many of these people could stand the kind of checks he has endured.  Between Feinstein’s and her husband’s Chinese connections, Blumenthal’s “Vietnam service”, the congressional slush fund to pay off those who make misconduct allegations against them and on and on.  I doubt many of them could pass even one.  

I have often said most of these people are the skid marks on the shorts of our country.  Most of them have skeletons in their closets to hide.  You have people in Congress that have been accused of and or have been convicted of felonies. Show me a politician that doesn’t lie and I’ll show you a politician who never held office.

How is it that most of these people have never held a job outside of government.  Not the way the founders envisioned it.  The next question is how is it so many of them are rich.  Not rich like I can afford a new car rich but rich like I can afford a new car dealership rich.  Here’s a list of the members of Congress and their net worth.

  Some of them actually earned their money, while others inherited it but the majority of them accumulated their money while “servicing” their country.  Notice that there are plenty of them in both parties with more money than they ever could have made in government. Politics – from Poly as in many and tics – as in blood sucking insects.  Some have made their fortunes from insider trading and crooked land deals while others have had “donations” from well-meaning lobbyists.  Who, by the way, had nothing to gain if their guy got elected. Wink wink nod nod. 

I’m sure that Trump has cut a few corners in deals in his life.  He certainly has been a womanizer.  Don’t forget Kennedy, Johnson and Clinton who were all doing the nasty while they were in office and in the office.  Eisenhower is said to have had a mistress as well.  (It isn’t all demoncRATS!)  My point is that none of them are perfect.  Some, far less perfect than most.  The problem is that some of them are corrupt, not just immoral and not just unethical.  

Thanks to Ray for this one.

Chuck Schumer was visiting a Washington D.C. primary school and the class was in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.

The teacher asked Mr Schumer if he would like to lead the discussion on the word ‘Tragedy’.
So Mr Schumer asked the class for an example of a ‘Tragedy’.

A little boy stood up and offered: ‘If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing’ in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a tragedy.’

‘Incorrect,’ said Schumer. ‘That would be an accident.’

A little girl raised her hand: ‘If a school bus carrying fifty children drove over a cliff, killing everybody inside, that would be a tragedy.’

‘I’m afraid not’, explained Schumer, ‘that’s what we would refer to as a great loss’.

The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Schumer searched the room.

‘Isn’t there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?’

Finally, at the back of the room, little Johnny raised his hand and said: ‘If a plane carrying you and Mrs. Pelosi and The Obama’s and Mrs. Clinton was struck by a ‘friendly fire’ missile & blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy.’

‘Fantastic’ exclaimed Schumer, ‘and can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?’

‘Well’, said Johnny, ‘it has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn’t be a great loss, and it probably wouldn’t be an accident either!’

Stupid or uneducated?

  If you get the rant second-hand and would like to get the rant notifications via email just send an email to and put subscribe in the subject.

A man I know opined that Americans are stupid. I agree with him… a little.  After all we do freely associate with the British.  We do let hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals into this country illegally.  I say “let” but I really mean don’t prosecute and deport. We sit and watch mindless blather on television like the real housewives of Asswipe Arkansas.  American households watch almost eight hours a day. That’s down from almost nine hours a day in 2010.

 I think there is a big difference between stupid and ill educated or uneducated.  Stupid is the inability to or unwillingness to learn.  This guy mentioned geography as an example stating that we (Americans) are s##t at geography.  I agreed and added history as well.  However I do have a couple of excuses for our lack of geographical knowledge.  Notice, I said excuses, not reasons. My main excuse is that there have been hundreds of city and country name changes since I was born.  How am I supposed to keep up?  I miss The Gold Coast.  Who names a country Ghana?  Only 35% of Americans have travelled outside the US.  We only take .2 trips a year per person.  That ranks us out of the top 10 in the world.  This article shows the top 10. How about US geography? Once upon a time I could recite all 48 oops 50 states and their capitals – alphabetically! I doubt I could do 25 of them today.  I mean, really. How often does  Bismarck come up in conversation? Or North Dakota for that matter.

Another excuse is that the travel inside the US is very diverse and it’s a lot cheaper and easier than traveling abroad.  So why learn geography? Seriously, wasn’t Constantinople so much cooler than Istanbul? 

 As I said earlier these are excuses.  The main reason is our broken, no, corrupt education system. From kindergarten through post graduate.  We are too busy explaining why Stuart has two daddies and teaching kids about the 63 genders  This link is a joke but there articles on the internet that seriously contend there are over 50!  Facebook says 53 is the magic number. and how the US was created to punish minorities. And how Socialism is so much better than capitalism and how it is racist to ask for chocolate ice cream.

History is another matter.  I blame our arrogance and once again our education system. Our arrogance in that many people in this country feel that history started with them or maybe their parents at most.   The education system has rewritten history time and again. 

If you have any doubt about the state of college education in the USA simply go on YouTube, look for “campus reform”.  Here are a couple of examples. 

Do you think you could pass this 1912 8th grade final exam?  I tried. 

I failed.

Jack went to a urologist and told the doctor that he was having a problem. “Well doctor, I am having trouble gaining and keeping an erection, but I never had any trouble before I got very sick a while ago.”

After a complete exam the doctor determined that the muscles around the base of his manhood were damaged from a prior viral infection and there was little or nothing he could do for him. However, he knew of an experimental treatment that might be applicable, if Jack were willing to take the risk. The treatment consisted of implanting muscle tissue from an elephant’s trunk to replace the damaged tissue. Jack thought about it for a while. He was a young man, and the thought of going through life without ever experiencing sex again was just too much for him to bear.

So, with the assurance that there would be no cruelty or adverse effect on the elephant, Jack decided to go for it. A few weeks after the operation, Jack was given the green light to use his newly renovated equipment. As a result, he planned a romantic evening with his young wife and took her to one of the nicest restaurants in the city. However, in the middle of dinner he felt a stirring between his legs that continued to the point of being extremely painful. To release the pressure, Jack unzipped his fly and immediately his equipment sprung from his pants, rose to the top of the table, grabbed a roll, then returned to his pants. His wife was stunned at first, but then with a sly smile on her face said, “Jack, that was incredible. Can you do that again?” Jack, with his eyes watering, replied, “I think I can, but I’m not sure I can fit another roll up my ass.”

Quit kidding me!  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not qualified to run for middle school student council let alone a federal office.  I’m not sure who it was that said something to the effect of,  “People like Ms. Ocasio-Cortez aren’t the problem. People stupid enough to vote for her are.”  In the last few weeks she has made statements so stupid and nonsensical about economics, unemployment and government she make one wonder if she attended the same college as Bozo the clown. Here are a few examples: You can even vote on which statement is the most stupid.  
The rant isn’t so much about her as it is about the education system in this country.  Every day politicians prove intelligence isn’t a prerequisite to hold public office.  I believe the people that vote for the likes of little Alex have no clue what they are voting for.  (Read one of my rants on Socialism.)  Many people vote based on emotion.  “She is a woman!”  “Crowley was a fat establishment pig!”  Oh, OK that one happened to be true as well as an emotional exclamation.  99% of the time this ends up as a bad move.  Witness Mad Maxine Waters.  She has never had a real job and she probably couldn’t recite the alphabet without outside help.  She also doesn’t live in the district she represents.  A four million dollar house would probably stand out in the low income 43rd district in LA.  You can’t put all the blame on Mad Maxine.  People actually voted for (one of) the most corrupt politicians in the swamp for 40 years!  A lot of younger people think Mad Maxine, Crazy Bernie and Little Alex are the greatest.  Aside from racist rants from Little Alex and Mad Maxine all three preach socialism.  Little Alex hasn’t bothered to see what socialism has done around the world. The other two, however, understand the consequences.  They know that as long as they are among the elite it works out good for them….  that is until the country turns into Venezuela.  But even then they dont care because they will either have died of old age or moved their wealth somewhere that they haven’t destroyed.
In order to usher in a socialist regime the proponents must, I say MUST lie about it.   The problem lies in the fact that most of the little snowflakes buy into the elephant excrement the progressive/socialist/communist bums preach.  Free this, free that, no police, no borders, etc.  They fail to understand that no one is going to give them free anything worth one hundredth of what they can earn in a real capitalist society.

A young woman brought her fiancé home to meet her parents. After dinner, her mother told the girl’s father to find out about the young man.

The father invited the fiancé to his study for a talk.  

“So, what are your plans?” the father asked the young man. 

 “I am a biblical scholar,” he replied 

 “A biblical scholar, hmmm?” the father said. “Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to live in?” 

 “I will study,” the young man replied, “and God will provide for us.”  

 “And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves?” asked the father. 

 “I will concentrate on my studies,” the young man replied, “God will provide for us.” 

 “And children?” asked the father. “How will you support children?”  

 “Don’t worry, sir, God will provide,” replied the fiancé. 

The conversation proceeded like this…and each time the father questioned, the young idealist insisted that God would provide.   

 Later, the mother asked, “How did your talk go, honey?” 

 The father answered,  ”Another Democrat   …he has no job, he has no plans, and he thinks I’m   God.”

Strzok and Page are just the tip of the putrid iceberg in DC.

Strzok and Page are just the tip of the putrid iceberg in DC.  Putrid iceberg?  No idea where that  came from!  Other than the fact they are just two of many, many corrupt and biased frauds in the DOJ   For them to claim that their tweets and comments which were one hundred percent anti Trump and ZERO percent pro Trump aren’t indicative of extreme bias is ludicrous.  Andrew McCarthy wrote a great piece on the subject.  

To listen to the LSM (Lame Stream Media) tell it you would think DJT and everyone he ever knew are Russian operatives.  The only two problems with this are, 1) After two years of investigation NO evidence of collusion by the Republicans.  2) There is more and more evidence that the DemoncRATs have plotted to, illegally, change the election. Not to mention the other crimes like Hillary’s email ‘matter’, her and Slick’s involvement with the Uranium One deal.

Congress is going to subpoena some of these jokers and hopefully we will start seeing some convictions.  These folks: James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe, Hillary Clinton and BO should ALL be questioned and if they are found to be lying should be tried and sent to prison for treason. After all they are trying to overthrow the duly elected government.

How about the Manafort investigation?  He may well deserve to go to jail for past money laundering activities.  Most of the lobbyists and politicians in DC could be charged with the same thing.  The point is that it was all before he worked for Trump.  The Mueller bunch is trying to tie all of Manafort’s activities to Trump.  At the very least they want to stain Trump with Manafort.

Overall, the objective of the establishment is now to get rid of Trump.  What he has done and continues to do is get things done.  What the swamp dwellers don’t like is that he is taking the politics out of government.  That’s right. I said it.  Nobody is buying his support.  He is showing that we don’t need an over bloated government to get things done.  He has led the way in getting rid of over burdening regulations, lowering taxes, clamping down on ILLEGAL immigration and showing that the United States doesn’t have to pay the bills for the rest of the world.  Not bad in a year and a half!

I saw an article stating that more millennials believe that Trump is doing good.  I’m afraid that it won’t be enough to stop the Socialist/communist/democRAT agenda because they won’t stop until they have created another Cuba or Venezuela.  They can’t do it overnight but they have made some real progress over the past ten years. (Trying to nationalize the healthcare system and energy production are just two examples)

In theory, Socialism is great.  Everyone gets a piece of the pie, deservedly so or not.  Everyone, in theory, owns a piece of the pie making machine. (Just don’t try to sell your share.)  Nobody is poor and nobody is rich.  Well, except for the politicians and their cronies.  Of course, the media would be included because they are needed to (mis)inform the populace.  Those in the education system that teach the socialist line are also treated well.  Those who don’t are treated to the labor camps.  This is what Crazy Bernie Sanders is proposing.

Some countries have tried a combination of socialism and Democracy to some success.  They have some combination of socialized medicine, massive welfare and government owned or controlled manufacturing .  All the countries of Europe have some or all these things. Most of them have financial problems.

The two (three) biggest problems are that 1) there are almost always exorbitant taxes and 2) there is no incentive to excel and 2b) there is no entrepreneurial spirit. Why invent something or start a business if you don’t get to reap the rewards?  These same problems carry through to the healthcare system and government departments.  An example is that many Canadians that can afford it come to the US for healthcare help because you can wait ‘till after you die for a needed operation or procedure in the Canadian health system.  There are stories of people getting appointment notices for procedures only after they have died or long since gotten help in another country.  Other countries with socialist governments have the same problem.

Another problem that we face in the US is because of the media or as I like to call them, “The Democrat Office of Propaganda”.  I won’t bother trying to list all the lies they have told over the last year and a half.  Here are a few. Media lies about Trump  Low Trust in Media  A simple search on Google will find many more.  My point is that the DOP ( DemocRAT Office of Propaganda) which consists mainly  of the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, NBC, PBS and a whole host of smaller “news”papers spew  bs and lies.  When the millennials see these lies they take them for the truth usually.  They don’t have a good point of reference because many of their (mis)educators reinforce the crap the DOP is selling.  Luckily there are a few places to get reasonably accurate news like Rush Limbaugh, CRTV and FOX.  The left like to say that these outlets are alt-right or Right Wing Propaganda.  If you listen to Rush for a while, you will find the tells BOTH sides of the story.  Or he tells the WHOLE story which the DOP often doesn’t. 

More and more of the people of color are catching on.  A recent poll showed that support for Trump among blacks has risen from 11% to 22% since he was elected.  They are finally understanding that the real racists are the ones that have made promises to them since the civil war and not kept a one.  

Hopefully the younger generations will come to their senses before the country goes in the can.  

Harriett was sitting in the front row of her dead husband’s memorial  when an old friend approached and asked if he could say a word. “Of course”, Harriett replied.
He went to the podium and straightened out the papers that were there, cleared his throat and said, “Plethora.” and sat down.
Harriett said to him, Thank you so much George. That means a lot.”

I got a memo, you got a memo

I was off Twitter for a while. If you tried to tweet my rant and couldn’t , you can now.   If you get the rant second-hand and would like to receive a notice when a new rant is available please email me at and put rant in the subject line.  Thanks. 

I got a memo, you got a memo, we all got memos. All this memo stuff is a big distraction from the issues at hand. The issue is the demoncRAT party’s attempt to steal the election. From the spying on the Trump campaign to the bogus dossier. “MemoGate” also tries to ignore the Clinton scandals from selling rights to US uranium to the Russians to Bill accepting $500,000 speaking fees from them and the Russians “donating” millions of dollars to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation. 

 The libtards are trying to put their party (and their own political careers) ahead of the country’s well being. What I don’t understand is how they can do this if they have children and grandchildren yet to live through what they are leaving them. I’m certain that they all don’t believe the kaka they are trying to peddle.

Then you have the adulterous pair of FBI agents who couldn’t have had time to do anything but text and IM each other all day and night while they weren’t doin’ the nasty. Their communications not only show a willingness to break the law first to prevent Trump from winning the election, then when he won they helped to distract the administration from doing it’s job. Why do they still have jobs? No, why aren’t they in jail?

Evidence has come to light that the James gang, Comey and Clapper, lied to the FISA court and Congress. There is also indications that BHO knew about a lot of this. On top of all this Comey conspired with others in order to get a special council appointed. Is it a coincidence that the council is made entirely of Trump haters. Not just Trump critics but Trump HATERS! Just read the released texts between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the adulterers.

So you keep your memo and Ill keep mine. C’mon Congress, let’s put some of these criminals in jail!

An old country preacher…..had a teenage son, and it was getting
time the boy should give some thought to

One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to

But if he picks up the bottle, he’s going to be a no-good

And worst of all if he
picks up that magazine he’s going to be a Skirt-chasing womanizer.’

The old man waited
anxiously, and soon heard his son’s footsteps as he entered the house
whistling and headed for his room.

The boy tossed his
books on the bed, and as he turned to leave the room, he spotted
the objects on the table..

With curiosity in his
eye, he walked over to inspect them. Finally, he picked up the Bible
and placed it under his arm.

Best picture?
Filed under: General
Posted by: Joe Melchiorre @ 9:19 am

Try as I might I cant understand why the Academy Awards have nominated a movie that promotes homosexual statutory rape for best picture.  The story line is about a twenty-four year old man falling in love with a  seventeen year old boy. That’s all of the storyline I know. After reading the reviews (which mostly gushed over the beautiful love story) and seeing the “R” rating you can be sure there are some scenes you really don’t want your kids to see.

One main consideration for the award is the box office.  This flick, ’Call me by your name’, had a little over $9,000,000  total box office which is over $20,000,000 less than the next/worst performer.  If you listen to the libtards in Hollywood they are committed to the fight against sexual harassment and degeneracy. Well, maybe not so much.  I guess it’s alright to molest a child as long as you are in love.  #METOOMYASS  Couple the poor box office with subject matter that would be abhorrent to anybody who isn’t a paid-up member of NAMBLA you would have to ask, “Why the hell was this POS even made let alone nominated for an academy award??”

This is the kind of movie that used to be shown in what were called “art houses” where they could show soft porn and call it art.  Porn has been around since cave men drew on walls.  Most civilized societies have tried to keep it away from young eyes.  Men like their prurient funny-bones tickled. Hollywood just seems to want to tickle younger and younger funny-bones  Could it be that the Hollywood crowd isn’t being sincere about the cries of piety that wail from their lips? Could they be shining us on when they decry the likes of Kevin, Harvey, Matt and a host of others then claim they didn’t know?

Box office receipts have been declining for years due to a number of reasons;  deteriorating theaters, peer to peer downloading, streaming and, frankly, crappy movies.  Maybe this was an attempt to push the boundaries and create a new more diverse audience.   Yeah, right!  Have you ever heard such BS in all your life?  All they care about is trying to generate revenue.  Which in itself isn’t a bad thing.  It would serve them right if this film? wins best picture.  It would be more proof of their degeneracy.  Maybe then Kevin Spacey could tale his rightful place as president if the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences!

A guy goes to the Post Office to apply for a job.
The interviewer asks him, “Are you allergic to anything?”
He replies, “Yes, caffeine. I can’t drink coffee.”
“OK, have you ever been in the military service?”
“Yes,” he says, “I was in Iraq for one tour.”
The interviewer says, “That will give you 5 extra points toward employment.”
Then he asks, “Are you disabled in any way?”
The guy says, “Yes. An IED exploded near me and I lost both my testicles.”
The interviewer grimaces and then says, “Okay. You’ve got enough points for me to hire you right now. Our normal hours are from 8 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. You can start tomorrow at 10 a.m., and plan on starting at 10 a.m. every day.”

The guy is puzzled and asks, “If the work hours are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., why don’t you want me here until 10 a.m.?”
“This is a government job”, the interviewer says. “For the first two hours, we just stand around drinking coffee and scratching our nuts. No point in you coming in for that

The Libtards are shutting down the government
Filed under: General
Posted by: Joe Melchiorre @ 6:36 pm


It’s downright embarrassing how the libtards are fighting for illegal aliens above their American constituents.  They are willing to shutdown the government in order to get legalization for the illegals.   In every city controlled by demoncRATS American unemployment is far above that of other areas of the country.  The leniency toward people in the country illegally is part of the reason.  Why do these politicians allow the illegals to come here and take jobs at low wages.  First and foremost in some states they offer these people benefits that even our military veterans can’t get to try insure these people will be life-long democrats.  

This can’t all be blamed on liberals because there are plenty of businesses that are happy to pay these low wages.  They lobby Republicrats (who have no ethics but fat wallets) who join the fight to keep illegals in the country.  Some of the arguments the libs use to keep them here are:

They pay taxes like everybody else.  This is patently false. Many of them, if they have a job, are being paid “under the table” and if they aren’t employed they enjoy all the benefits of any American citizen without the responsibilities.

They commit less crimes than Americans.  Bull S**t!  Illegals commit more crimes per capita than Americans.  This isn’t even the point.  If they weren’t here the crimes wouldn’t have happened.  Over 30% of the Federal prison population are illegal aliens. 

This is a country of immigrants.  This is partially true.  The big difference is that the early immigrants came here legally and actually wanted to become Americans.  These people want to be separate, not part of the American dream.  They want to form colonies of their homeland.  They want to, in the case of Muslims, follow their own laws OVER federal, state and local laws.

In some states illegal aliens are putting unsustainable pressures on school systems, public services and law enforcement.  

The idea is that we allow immigrants (over a million a year) into the country legally that will make America better, not make America a shithole. Build the wall!

A man answers the phone and has the following conversation: “Yes, mother, I’ve had a hard day. Gladys has been most difficult - I know I ought to be more firm, but it is hard.~~~Well, you know how she is. “Yes, I remember you warned me. I remember you told me that she was a vile creature who would make my life miserable and you begged me not to marry her. “You were perfectly right. “You want to speak with her? All right. ” He looks up from the telephone and calls to his wife in the next room: “Gladys, your mother wants to talk to you! “

Jeff Foxworthy has written a great rant that I wish I had written. I hope he doesn’t get mad that I’m using it.


By Jeff Foxworthy:

If plastic water bottles are okay, but plastic bags are banned, you might live in a nation (state) that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.


If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for entering and remaining in the country illegally you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote for who runs the government you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman who is confined to a wheelchair or a three-year-old girl can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is “cute” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

Conyers, Franken, Weinstein, Clinton, Wiener, O’Riley, Moore, Rivera, Lauer, Spacey and so on.  Sounds pretty lopsided towards the demoncRAT side.  But think about it for a moment.  The entertainment and TV news industries are dominated by the liberal left. Therefore more dems are outed.  Lord Acton said, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” 

When you are a Hollywood producer or news mogul or a powerful politician or any other person with power it’s possible, sometimes easy, to abuse that power.  Im sure some of them, like Menendez, steal while others are content to satisfy their more prurient desires.  There are plenty of underlings willing to submit to these abuses in order to further their careers. There are many more, however, who didn’t want these advances but had to suffer through them to save their jobs.  Others tried to tell the stories of harassment or even rape were ridiculed.

In the case of republicrats, they generally throw the offender or alleged offender under the bus before the smoke clears so the story doesn’t last long. Remember Foley or Packwood?  This helps keep the republicRATS in line. They either don’t do the crime or they hide it better!  The demoncRAT party is a whole different story.  They deny, deny deny.  Once the pig does the dirty deed he/she denies it to his/her own people. Once it is out among his/her own people they conveniently forget they were lied to and proceed to protect their own, giving them a sense of immunity. Some of them (read Ted Kennedy, Harvey Weinstein) feel entitled.

I have no doubt that there are offenders of all political, religious and gender persuasions.  More will come out, no doubt. If Republican they will hammer him into the dirt.  If demoncRAT his buddies will circle the wagons and get the pope to reminisce how wonderful this portrait of purity is. The liberal media will decry the awful treatment the poor sainted victim has been put through by the cruel Republican Party.

So, don’t be too giddy about the next Geraldo, Garrison or Kevin getting exposed. Just listen to Graham or Corker and tell me they’re straight!  Just remember, absolute power corrupts absolutely….no matter what your political affiliation.

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, “What is politics?” Dad says, “Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I’m the breadwinner of the family, so let’s call me capitalism. Your Mom, she’s the administrator of the money, so we’ll call her the Government. We’re here to take care of your needs, so we’ll call you the people. The nanny, we’ll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we’ll call him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense,” So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said. Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents’ room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny’s room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed. The next morning, the little boy says to his father, “Dad, I think I Understand the concept of politics now.” The father says, “Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about.” The little boy replies, “Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep shit.”

It’s a swamp problem

Many years ago serving in government was an honor and a privilege that was not a career.  From the founding of the country into the early 1900’s it was highly unusual to find someone who served more than two or three terms in the congress.  The people that served did just that. They served.  The idea was to help the country.  JFK’s immortal words, “Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.” should apply to politicians more than to ordinary citizens. Now days you will find that many members of congress have never had a real job or any real world experience outside of the hallowed halls of academia where they’re taught the fine arts of equivocation, deceit and manipulation.  All the qualities needed to obtain and stay in an office.  This is not an afflicton of only the DemocRATs. The Republicans are just as guilty.

 Donald Trump is a threat to their way of life.  The main reason is that he wants to run the government like a business.  This means getting rid of wasteful spending, useless people and redundant departments. This scares the s**t out of career politicians. (Most of them fall into the useless category.). 

 Here is an example:  The Department of Education mission statement reads,”Our mission is to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access.”  That is one BS statement if there ever was one!  Never has one child been educated by the Department of Education.  What they do is make regulations most of which have absolutely nothing to do with educating and make education more costly due to the ever growing budget. (Around 70 billion dollars)

 Another example is the E.P.A.  The agency has over 16,000 employees with a budget of around 9 billion dollars.  While the agency does some good they also over-regulate an make gargantuan mistakes. Ask the people of Flint.

 What about the Department of Energy?  The department budget is over 32 billion dollars.  The original intent of the department was to promote and enable US energy independence.  How has that worked out?  Under Democrat and Republican administrations, they poured untold billions into wind and solar energy projects that turned out to be mostly scams.   They tried to kill the oil and coal industries.  The poor little millennials that want to buy their electric cars don’t stop to think where the electricity comes from.   Here is a recent article on the cost of running an electric car.  Someday soon it may be more economical to own an electric vehicle.  Just as long as you aren’t planning to go more than 70 miles or so.  {Got to charge those batteries for several hours before going again.)

 A lot of this turning around with Trump as he is trying to cut many of these departments.  How this affects the politicians is an easy guess. The lobbyists come out of the woodwork offering everything from “fact finding junkets” to outright monetary bribes and everything in between.  Very tempting indeed.  If Trump is successful much of the corruption will go away.

 Some politicians were rich when they came into office but most weren’t.  Over half of them are now millionaires.  Many of these millionaires NEVER had a job outside of sucking at the teat of government. Check out this site. to see the net worth of federal politicians. 

This is not just a Democrat or just a Republican Problem.  It’s a SWAMP problem.

You might be a redneck if….

You’ve been married three times and still have the same in-laws. Jack Daniels makes your list of “Most Admired People. ” You wonder how service stations keep their restrooms so clean. Anyone in your family ever died right after saying, “Hey, y’all watch this! “You’ve got more than one brother named ‘Darryl.’ You think that Dom Perignon is a Mafia leader. Your wife’s hairdo was once ruined by a ceiling fan. Your Junior/Senior Prom had a Daycare. You think the last words to The Star Spangled Banner are, “Gentlemen, start your engines. “The bluebook value of your truck goes up and down, depending on how much gas it has in it. One of your kids was born on a pool table. You need one more hole punched in your card to get a freebie at the House of Tattoos. Ya can’t get married to yer sweetheart ’cause there’s a law against it. You dated one of your parents’ current spouses in high school. You think loading the dishwasher means getting your wife drunk. Your school fight song is “Dueling Banjos. ” Your toilet paper has page numbers on it.”

Can we survive the millenial generation?
Filed under: General
Posted by: Joe Melchiorre @ 1:09 pm

Why do millennial children think Socialism is so great? I can only attribute it to a lack of true information. Not a lack of education. Thant’s different, way different. You can be educated and still be uninformed or misinformed. Look, for example, at the college degrees and courses that exist out there. Women’s studies, Parapsychology, Surfing Studies, (I’m not kidding!) Star Trek, Golf Management. You can look them up and find most are from big-name colleges. The list goes on and on. Just what kind of job are you going to get with your degree in hurt feelings studies? Jessie Watters does on the street interviews asking tough questions like who was B.O.’s Vice President or what is the capital of New York and these geniuses can’t answer the questions because they think all they have to do is be in touch with their inner self and everything will be fine.

Their liberal professors are happy to let them believe this for a couple of reasons: 1) They know their school (and they) will be rid of them in a few years and none of their lack of knowledge will come back to them., 2) Keeping then uninformed makes it easer to foist the liberal agenda on the little skulls full of mush. (Thanks Rush.)

They have been taught that Socialism makes everyone equal. The problem is that in order for that to be true it means that most people have to lose much of what they have. Wait… Let’s go back a little. A true Socialist society has as its main tenet that everything belongs to the state and everyone contributes to the state. The state then gives you what the state thinks you are worth. Obviously those doing the determining and their bosses, family and friends are worth the most. After that money and power are doled out according to how much you are worth to the state.

Another problem with Socialism is that the innovators and entrepreneurs either leave or stop innovating. Over time this causes economic stagnation which in turn makes for a lack of employment.

It’s easy to embrace Socialism when you live in mommy’s basement and haven’t been able to find employment suitable for your black albino lesbian toe nail studies degree. The money you collect from welfare and your allowance isn’t as much as if you had only minored in Bolivian funeral dirges.

As a test, ask a Socialist leaning millennial to name a socialist country that has succeeded.

(Mike drop!)

This little old lady calls 911. When the operator answers she yells,”Help, send the police to my house right away! There’s a damn Republican my front porch and he’s playing with himself. “What? ” the operator exclaimed. “I said there is a damn Republican on my front porch playing with himself and he’s weird; I don’t know him and I’m afraid! Please send the police! ” the little old lady repeated. “Well, now, how do you know he’s a Republican? “Because, you damn fool, if it was a Democrat, he’d be screwing somebody! “

A Packer fan was enjoying himself at the game in a packed Lambeau Field, until he noticed an empty seat down in front. He went down and asked the guy next to it if he knew whose seat it was. The guy said, “Yes, that’s my wife’s seat. We have never missed a game since the Lombardi days, but now my wife is dead. ” The fan offered his sympathy and said it was really too bad he couldn’t find some relative to give the ticket to so they could enjoy the game together… “Oh no,” the guy said, “they’re all at the funeral. “

A multipart rant
Filed under: General
Posted by: Joe Melchiorre @ 8:29 pm

     If you would like to receive these rants directly, please email me at and put “rant” in the subject line.      

A multi-part rant

1: I lied to you. A couple of rants ago I wrote that Hillary won 57 counties in the election. This is information I got from a web page that was in error. Hillary won 487 counties. It is important that when you publish information that it is correct otherwise you look like a fool and nobody will believe you. Thanks to my friend Phil for pointing it out to me

2: A. little note to the ass-clown headed east on Indiantown Road yesterday about 7:45 am in a black Nissan Pathfinder. You cut me off as you were speeding and going lane to lane. I’m sure you didn’t hear me cursing you out or see me flipping you the bird. The point of this is that it was about 8 miles before I turned off and you were 3 cars ahead of me when I did. You probably drove two miles extra side-to-side. Idiot.

3: The demoncRATs are behaving like spoiled six year olds. Donald Trump won the election and between them and Obama’s Organizing For Action which used to be Organizing For America, the protest and riot starters, they will do whatever it takes to destroy Trump. They, along with their propaganda arm the MSM, have lied, exaggerated, distorted and just plain made up stories they think could help wreck Trump. They omitted anything that could be construed as helpful to the administration. All of this to the detriment of the country. For the next eight years (That’s right, I said eight years.)(Unless of course, they kill him) they will keep every story that can hurt Trump on the front page. They will protest and riot at every opportunity and do whatever damage they can. Trump complains about the “Fake Media” for good cause. CNN in particular has been responsible for many a false story followed closely by the New York Times.

4: We have people coming into this country that want to hurt us. No, make that KILL us. Some want to actually blow us up. Some want to change the country by taking it over. The illegal aliens are becoming a very large democrat voting block. In some towns and counties there are non American mayors and Sharia courts. See here The establishment demoncRATs and republicrats want illegals. The dems for a voting block and the RINOs for cheap labor. 

The only chance we have is to support the Trump administration and keep electing more and more conservatives in the future.

“What? ” the operator exclaimed.
“I said there is a damn Republican on my front porch playing with himself and he’s weird; I don’t know him and I’m afraid! Please send the police! ” the little old lady repeated.
“Well, now, how do you know he’s a Republican?
“Because, you damn fool, if it was a Democrat, he’d be screwing somebody! “
